Patsy G. Diffee was born in Montague County on May 20, 1941 to parents, Elmer and Opal Gillaspia. She grew up in Kennedale and Bowie. In 1958 she graduated from Bowie High School, then married "Butch" Diffee. She had four beautiful children and spent her life being a wife and mother. Being a "bookworm", she was soon thrust into service as a recreation softball coach. She led her team to the All Stars by memorizing the rule book. This led to a lifelong love of the sport.
Family times included everything from dinner to water gun fights at her home. While raising her children she managed to attain a college degree and started working at the City of Fort Worth. She eventually achieved senior buyer status, retiring years later.
Her retirement years were spent attending and cheering on grandchildren at sporting events, recitals, etc. She loved her children and grandchildren, heaping love and care on each in good and bad times.
Patsy had an independent spirit and loved to travel and meet new friends. She met challenges head on with determination that a solution would be found. She had an open heart for those who bore similar situations she encountered. She was gracious and generous beyond compare. Her family has been blessed that God would give them such a wonderful person to lead, love and pass along the hope of a greater future for us all.
Patsy was preceded in death by her parents, Elmer and Opal Gillaspia, brothers, Lawrence and Richard Gillaspia, and sisters, Pegg June Gillaspia and Dorothy Caruthers.

Quannah, so sorry you are missing your Mom...Remembering such good times sitting and visiting with her. Obit tells what a strong and resilient woman she was.

You served her with patience and dignity. So now she is on my list of people to look for after we first meet Jesus! Love you!
